Water of Life – Iniquity Distillery Batch 017

 

You are not mistaken if you claim that Iniquity and its artisanal expressions have been previously covered as part of our Water of Life series and it is never not a delight to indulge in their meticulously crafted batches, the constituents of which are locally sourced with focus being put on local grain,  peat and local Mallee stumps to smoke their whiskies.

Remnants of flocculation are testament to Iniquity Distillery’s focus being firmly places on flavour and both the packaging as well as the label designs show that their attention to detail does not stop with the whiskies, let alone the specifically coopered casks for which they source oak through their coopers based in the Southern part of Australia.

If you followed the recent coverage on Iniquity, you would know that the people behind it are an innovative bunch that always strives to push the boundaries – be it through technical explorations or when it comes to channelling their alchemy when it comes to the creation of their whiskies.

The Den’s Dram; Batch No. 017 is an example par excellence for that approach.

Word around the campfire has that two handful of teams comprised of whisky aficionados convened were tasked to design Batch 017. What sounds like a borderline scientific enterprise, turned out to be a fun evening at the end of which a new drop was created, that will be exclusively available to Iniquity’s club members, i.e. the “Den of Iniquity” Members.

Splitting the base of two base whiskies, the winning team spiced it up quite a bit but not in an overwhelmingly peppery and chili-esque manner. The vanilla creaminess finds itself amplified by the creamy mouthfeel and reminds me a bit of the sweet butteryness of some of the more exquisite Limeburners expressions but adds its own distinct flavours with the cashew and dark chocolate nuances that dominate the elongated finish.
